COZY POWELL – DANCE WITH THE DEVIL

17 07 2008

Cozy Powell, one of rock’s mightiest drummers. He was in more giant rock bands than anyone, and sessioned on some great stuff with Mickie Most.

That list includes the Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Whitesnake, Emerson Lake and Powell, Gary Moore, and Black Sabbath, to name a few. He also did session work for Hot Chocolate, Donovan, Suzi Quatro, Roger Daltrey, Cinderella, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Tipton Entwistle Powell among many others.

Cozy Powell died on April 5, 1998 following a car crash, driving his Saab 9000 at 104 mph in bad weather on the M4 motorway near Bristol, while talking to his girlfriend on his mobile phone. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was over the drink-drive limit.

‘Dance With the Devil’ reached number 3 in the UK singles chart during January 1974. The track inspired teens all over the world to pick up some sticks and bang on that drum all day. 7″ Single version below the live video version from the mid to late 80’s.
